Description

From New York Times bestselling author of Destiny of the Republic and The River of Doubt

, a thrilling narrative of Winston Churchill's extraordinary and little-known exploits during

the Boer War At age twenty-four, Winston Churchill was utterly convinced it was his destiny to

become prime minister of England one day, despite the fact he had just lost his first election

campaign for Parliament. He believed that to achieve his goal he must do something spectacular

on the battlefield. Despite deliberately putting himself in extreme danger as a British Army officer

in colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising against the

Spanish, glory and fame had eluded him. Churchill arrived in South Africa in 1899, valet and

crates of vintage wine in tow, there to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with

Boer rebels. But just two weeks after his arrival, the soldiers he was accompanying on an armored

train were ambushed, and Churchill was taken prisoner. Remarkably, he pulled off a daring

escape--but then had to traverse hundreds of miles of enemy territory, alone, with nothing but a

crumpled wad of cash, four slabs of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. The story of his

escape is incredible enough, but then Churchill enlisted, returned to South Africa, fought in several

battles, and ultimately liberated the men with whom he had been imprisoned. Churchill

would later remark that this period, "could I have seen my future, was to lay the foundations of my

later life." Millard spins an epic story of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of

historical characters—including Rudyard Kipling, Lord Kitchener, and Mohandas Gandhi—with

whom he would later share the world stage. But Hero of the Empire is more than an adventure

story, for the lessons Churchill took from the Boer War would profoundly affect 20th century

history.
